3 rounds of crochet and some crafty burnout

Each Wednesday, I take stock of the projects I’m working on.

3 rounds. That’s how many rounds I’ve added to my giant granny square that will some day turn into a cardigan sweater project.

This is really the only project I’m focusing on (other than untangling a giant pile of yarn), and I figured progress was slow due to a combination of: infinitely long rounds + wooly yarn + hot sticky August weather.

It wasn’t until yesterday, when I was writing some number gazing/reflecty writing about the end of the self-made wardrobe that I thought to throw crafting burn out into the mix.

This year for the self-made wardrobe I ended up making 23 pieces of wearable clothing (including 7 hand knit sweaters) + 1 winter coat + a handful of tank tops. And then on top of that a bunch of accessories + a handful of shawls.

That’s a not insignificant pile of stuff!

No wonder all I want to do with my free time is hang out + read + write + think + walk in the sun + get more sunburned + lazily crochet 3 rounds in a week.

So that’s what I’ll do.

  1. Very understandable that you’re having a crafty burnout, that really is a super impressive amount of handmade things for one year. Take your time and the mojo to make stuff will come back eventually!

      Thanks Tahnee! The quantity of what I ended up making hadn’t quite hit me, I think all told I averaged 2.5-3 finished projects per month.
